It is so thoughtful of you to pick up and return my artwork, to save me the trips to Chattanooga. Besides, I am so fortunate to benefit from your excellent work.  I admire your skills with the camera, computer and printer, way beyond anything I could do.
Thank you, again!

  You did a magnificent job of photographing a difficult piece.  You completely eliminated the glare from the varnish and got absolutely true colors.  I am very impressed.Thanks so much, Leila





 "What a joy to open your envelope and behold the gorgeous square catalog of your work inside.  It’s beautiful, simply put!  There’s an astonishing (and intriguing) contrast between its color-filled recto-verso outside and the spare elegance of the photography of each single work.

Of course, when I read the end-paper’s credits and that Chris Oughtred/North Light did the photographic work, I wasn’t surprised.  The catalog is a remarkable work of art, in and of itself!  The inside images are breath-taking:  the exquisite lighting, the stark beauty of each piece’s singularity and presence…  Whew!
 You should feel an innate sense of extreme satisfaction with this production.  (I also love your use of “shadow” as a medium…so very important to your work and it presentation…and, to me, a unique use of this word as a descriptive medium.)"
